I tried Wombles MPEG2VCR and did a test. I grabbed three songs from my movie DVDs (one crossed over from one VOB to the next). I got .MPG files of around 300 MB each (the total of the three songs was just over 850MB).
I was able to play the .MPG files using Windows Media Player 10 so I thought everything's looking good.
I then used CyberLink's PowerProducer (the only software that I've got to create DVDs) to create a basic menu with some buttons and 10 sec looping video clips on the menu. I then burned the DVD. The total space used on the DVD was 1.3GB. At this rate, I'll only be able to put 10 songs on a disc (I was hoping for more).
Unfortunately, there is no sound when I try to play the DVD using CyberLink's PowerDVD 5. I didn't get a chance to try it out on the settop DVD player (it was too late at night), but without sound, the whole effort is wasted. Am I doing something wrong (I know that PowerProducer might not be the best software to use, but I don't think I've got anything else)?
Staying on the topic of sound, does MPEG2DVD keep the AC3 audio of the original DVDs?
Thanks for the help so far.
